NCVS Taking the Temperature


As part of its VCS 2020 work, Newcastle CVS (Council for Voluntary Service) carried out a survey of its members in April 2015. The survey asked questions about the organisations - their status, their achievements and challenges, and what pressures they had identified for the future. Seventy one voluntary and community organisations completed the survey, and they represent a reasonable reflection of the Newcastle CVS membership, although small community organisations, i.e. those organisations which are volunteer-led and have an income of less than ÂŁ5, 000, are underrepresented both in CVS membership and the responses.
